2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Honeymoon period was over too quickly. Although I love driving it--great pick- up at start up and highway--the problems soon began. Electrical malfunctions: Windows, power seats get stuck when adjusting, a/c sometimes dose not turn on, etc. But the worst-- the transmission. The transmission rises to 2 revolutions and revs there all by itself. It gets stuck in 2nd, and I often (more often lately)have to pull over. Car also turned off (at 25 mph) while driving and all functions were stuck--very scarey when steering and brakes don't work! Technicians finally reparied after three weeks-- say it can happen with any car. I don't buy that.

Favorite Features

Pretty to look at, nice to drive, auto lights, spacious.

Suggested Improvements

Third row too tight, interior door handles chip easily, transmission chronically ill.
